Woah, I’ve been playing Crisis Core for the past few days, reaching the stage of completion just yesterday. Upon hindsight, it’s a rather good game, possibly the best RPG released for the PSP system to date. The game follows the story of Zack Fair, rather than the more popular Cloud, and chronicles it into what seems to be a prelude to Final Fantasy 7. Now, Zack’s fighting skills are nowhere near Cloud’s (Zack’s Rush Assault, which seems to be his most damaging manouever, does peanuts when compared to Omnislash or even Climhazzard). Moreover, Zack only gets a weapon upgrade to the Buster Sword, which is overrated and cumbersome, not to mention ugly. Cloud’s Ultima Weapon just beats it into the Lifestream and beyond. Other than that, the voice acting feels shaky, with over-enthusiastic rants from Zack. Watch out for ayaka’s track, Why, being played at the end, though.
Besides this, I’ve been searching for a good set of headphones to no avail. I have a strong dislike for the in-ear varieties, and the oversized earphones are strictly out of bounds, particularly due to their poor portability. I’ve been looking at this great pair from Bang and Olufsen, but the price has denied me from owning one time and time again. It costs $199 US dollars, for your information, but it’s critically acclaimed. Sound quality is rumoured to be one of, if not the best, and it looks amazingly good. Can someone do the Jay Chou thing in Kung Fu Dunk and get the time back to the Chinese New Year period?
Lastly, I seem to have a problem with mints, especially Eclipse mints. These pills are like a drug; once you take one, it’s impossible to stop. I can finish 10 of these mints in a day, 15 if I’m emo after reading shoujo mangas or something like that. The point is, these mints are really dangerous. It retails at $2.95 for 50 pieces damn it. The bastards over at Wrigley must be counting cash like sheep by now.
I want to work, screw studying. Not with some stupid blue-collar job, mind you. I can envision this LLB degree encased in an ornate frame, hanging on the wall like a transient spectre overlooking all. Until then, it’s just the books.
Next would be…. ah. Patapon revisited.
I was transported to a faraway planet, to a world where monsters rule! Classic.

Let me help you fly, ’cause you won’t have time, To cover your eyes or get your disguise, They won’t ask you why, they’ll just watch you die, And it’s still so hard to be who you are, So you play this part and the show goes on, But you’ve come this far with a broken heart
You’ve come this far and you’re broken.
I’m here. It feels like moving house, where all your personal belongings have been utterly displaced. Seeing as I’ll be needing some time to settle in, this should do it for the first post. The topic will be simple and straight to the point; I have a sudden urge to watch some late night wrestling already.
Now, I was faced with a plethora of choices once I quit that damned Blogger community. Among the packleaders were Livejournal, Googlepages, Xanga and of course, WordPress. When the options outnumber the need, you know it’s time for some elimination. The first one to get axed was Googlepages, as anything from Google is utter trash. GMail just doesn’t seem to cut it, and why should Googlepages be any different? The lack of customization also deterred me from subscribing to this blogging host.
Now, we have Livejournal. It looks acceptable, although I say this rather unwillingly. Why so? Just refer to a standard Livejournal blog and you’ll notice the mood thing there. Yeah, it’s even accompanied with a face, how intriguing. Obviously, Livejournal caters towards a female audience, and a quick check of my chest region revealed nothing that suggested the requirement for supports. Mikazukidays.livejournal.com just doesn’t have that ring to it, either. Three strikes, LJ’s out.
We’re left now with Xanga and WordPress. All I know about Xanga is that it’s this service that Americans adore. I don’t like that, since its a form of globalisation in itself. I detest globalisation, because I abhor the segment on it in our Geography textbook. Although I can ace your average Geography exam, the studying is somewhat of a bore, wading through the swamp of dry facts that never seem to enter the brainstream, ever.
WordPress remains. I spent 10mins or so setting this up, and it looks somewhat decent for a first attempt. Alright time for wrestling now, that’s all.
